Celtic beat Rangers in Scottish Cup final

Celtic have beaten Rangers 1- 0 in a cagey Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park, sealing palm with a 90th- nanosecond winner from Adam Idah as Brendan Rodgers’s side completed the league and mug double.

The match was by no means a classic and sounded fated for redundant time on Saturday when Idah, who joined the club on loan from Norwich City before this time, popped up in the right place at the right time to score and give Celtic a record- extending 42nd Scottish Cup triumph.

The palm assured Rodgers completed the same double that Ange Postecolglou had achieved with Celtic last season before his move to Tottenham, althoygh the Australian also made it a treble with their Scottish League Cup win too.

Celtic scored when Paulo Bernardo dribbled into the final third and took a shot from the edge of the box that was palmed off down by goalkeeper Jack Butland, but Idah had hulled down from his marker to fire home the answer.

” I said I’d come then to try and score as numerous pretensions as I could, I did not suppose I’d score a thing like this in front of all these suckers. It’s an amazing feeling,” Idah said.

” It’s hard to put into words. Anyone then can see what it means to the suckers, to the players. I have always supported Celtic, it’s amazing.”

Rangers, meanwhile, have finished runners- up in both the Premiership and the Scottish Cup this season but didn’t finish the crusade empty- handed having won the League Cup.

Rangers allowed
they had scored from a corner on the hour mark when Abdallah Sima netted at the far post but it was chalked off following a VAR review which showed Nicolas Raskin had fouled Celtic keeper Joe Hart.
